Default 97 radio relocation

alright i searched and i didn't find anything on how to relocate the radio to behind the cupholder. so i thought i'd go out and post a diy on it so here it is, btw it's my first diy so i hope it passes you're standards

Tool's needed,
6 in 1 screwdriver, that's it!!!!!! lol
(I already had a aftermarket radio installed so i already had everything wired up for the stock wiring location. everything will fit with no modifying

ok, here's a before pic

pic of the radio mounted, you should use all 4 mounting locating on the radio. or it won't be very stable, and they should all line up without any problems

Good job. Mad easy to do, even if your clueless. lol. + Rep for making the write-up.
I did this to my 00 sedan. After awhile, it got mad annoying to have the radio way down below. Especially if you have drinks in the (useless) cupholders.

You need the 96-98 cupholders to do this in 99-00 Civics, BTW.

Thank you all for your input, btw

EJ6, funny enough my remote still works with cups in the holder and the lid up, otherwise i think i would get tired of it too.

JOLLY, I've decided to put 2 or 3 gauges in the block off plate along with a usb charger port and probally a few switches. i'll post pix when i get them

thanks again everyone, i'll be givin rep for the responces

i really don't get the point of this mod. the radio is so far away from your reach now. Are you swapping in boost gauges or something in the gap? Why would you want a giant gap in the console?

Nice DIY writeup though! lol

exactly what i had in my old setup, i really don't mind the radio being low either because I"m usually not messing with it. And since the cup holder are useless anyway i have made the lid permanently shut.

sorry i don't have my 95 to screw around with anymore. so i can't really answer your question. i don't know what the underside of the concle looks like off the top of my head. i'd just say tear your's apart and see if it will work or not. either way you should post your results up here

Thank you, ya i am using gauges where the radio was at orginially. i made a blockoff plate for it. the radio being that far away isn't that bad, my radio came with a remote that works very well even with the cup holder lid open so it's not really that bad. not to mention my radio plays sd cards so i just use a 8gig sd card to store music on and never really have to open the face or never really need acess to the buttons on the face
